An Expanding Portal is Destroying Lonely Lodge in Fortnite

Fortnite’s rocket launch event happened on the 30th of June, and the map is already seeing changes as a result.

The rocket tore a massive hole in the sky above the map, but a few areas on the ground also saw some changes in the aftermath.

Fans were anticipating what the rocket could do ever since a piece of a thruster was found near Anarchy Acres at the beginning of Season 4.

Players logged in before 1:30 PM EST for a chance to witness the rocket launch in person, with a general ceasefire taking place so everyone could watch the event unfold. One player did not get the memo and set the single game kills record during the launch, however.

Shortly after launch, a glowing orb appeared near Lonely Lodge. Although no one is quite sure what the orb is, most theories involve it being a portal or a time warp.

Those theories now look a little more sound as the orb has begun to expand, taking on a similar appearance to the crack in the sky.

YouTuber Ali-A was one of the first to notice the growing orb.

The orb is even doing damage to the map, destroying the sign that once hung over Lonely Lodge.

Some are claiming that the crack in the sky is also expanding, but there is no hard evidence to suggest that at this time.

However, it is reasonable to expect the orb will continue to alter the map throughout the remainder of Season 4, leading up to the reveal of Season 5 and hinting at what is to come.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

Expect the Sentinel Graveyard to be a hot drop for the next week.

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
